Our June Asian Works of Art ONLINE ONLY auction offers exceptional works from China, Japan, and Korea. Earliest Chinese works are a select group of gold ornaments dating to the Warring States and figural sculpture from the Han and Tang dynasties. Highlights from the Ming and Qing dynasties include two important blue and white ceramics: a Ming Chenghua censer and a Yongzheng vase, both descended from New England collections. Rich in textiles there are fine examples of robes, rank badges, and chair covers. A single-owner collection of extraordinary Japanese Meiji period cloisonné works will be offered, including pieces by Namikawa, Hayashi, and Ando. A rare, bronze sundial highlights the Korean works of art.
